The Chase viewers were left furious when the show aired an old celebrity special instead of a new episode last night.
Fans tuned in to Monday night’s show hoping to see four strangers pit their wits against The Chaser, however, instead they were greeted by Emmerdale actors Mark Charnock, Charley Webb, Matthew Wolfenden and Amy Walsh.
The four stars all appeared on the ITV game show in November last year.
Viewers weren’t happy and took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
Some even revealed they were switching over to rival show BBC’s Pointless.
One person said: “Why isn’t there a new episode of The Chase today? It’s been replaced by a repeat of an Emmerdale celebrity special for some reason.”

Another wrote: “I’ve already watched this episode. where’s my new episode? #thechase,” while a third tweeted: “Can’t stand repeats. I turn off as soon as I see it’s a repeat.”

Can’t stand repeats. I turn off as soon as see it’s a repeat. Looks like you’re turning into a ‘Pointless’ quiz!

And it seems a large amount of viewers switched over to Pointless.
One person said: “Is everyone from #thechase here today on #pointless?” while another wrote: “Urgh celebrity #thechase specials all week.
“I don’t know any of these people and they all get easy questions which the audience clap every time they get them right like it’s an achievement. Definitely switching to #Pointless.”

However, unfortunately for fans of The Chase, ITV will be airing repeats for the rest of the week.
The show’s official Twitter page wrote: “We hope you enjoyed tonight’s episode. Stay tuned for more repeats of our #CelebritySpecials every day this week at 5PM on @ITV and @WeAreSTV! #TheChase.”
